The establishment folks in Washington, D.C., they’re in the bubble and they see the world very, very differently than we do and I think most Americans do. And we’re going to continue to go out and try to elect conservatives to the presidency and that’s what we’re focused on.
Rick Santorum • Responding to political types suggesting he should drop out, days before the Wisconsin primary. Santorum says he’s in it until Mitt Romney clearly has enough delegates to win — something that likely won’t happen until June, based on how things are going so far. Romney just won another endorsement, this time from Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson (no relation), a show of support that has Santorum on the defensive.

The national unions, for them, this is all about the money. It’s not just about the budget or collective bargaining. We gave nearly every, well, we gave every public employee in the state the freedom to choose whether or not they want to be in a union or not and I think that’s really why this is a Waterloo for them.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker • Suggesting that the recall election against him was “Waterloo” for union groups trying to keep their influence. He seemed unfazed by the political cloud hanging over his head. “They’re going to invest everything possible to try and take me out to send a message not only to other Republican governors,” he continued, “but I think to a number of discerning Democrat governors and mayors who look at this and say, you know what? Maybe we can rein in our cost here and be able to balance our budget in a way that’s responsible if we do some of the same things that they’ve done in Wisconsin.” Think he’s just trying to keep a strong face?

On Saturday, as tens of thousands of Wisconsinites marched in remembrance of the uprising against Walker’s agenda, there was much talk about the upcoming recall election — and that was important.

But it was equally important that the issue focus remained on renewing the state’s collective bargaining law. There was a recognition that the Wisconsin fight has never been, and can never be, about partisan politics alone. Not when basic rights are at stake.

Collective bargaining is a part of Wisconsin history, an example of this state’s ‘forward’ progressive values.

‘I was around in 1959 when Wisconsin became the first state in the United States, the first state in the Union, to adopt a law to permit public employees to collectively bargain,’ explains the senior member of the state Legislature, Senator Fred Risser, D-Madison. ’Back then, Wisconsin was known as a progressive, innovative state.’

Risser’s serious about renewing Wisconsin’s reputation as a progressive, innovative state, And he has joined with a much younger legislator, state Representative Mark Pocan, D-Madison, to propose legislation that would fully restore collective bargaining rights in Wisconsin.“ - John Nichols

Good to see this issue is still as vital on Wisconsinites’ minds as it was a year ago.
